bloomsburg: First Time Buyers - ACT NOW!!! - 05/12/09 10:08 PM
Don't miss the window of opportunity!  There couldn't be a better time to buy!  Affordable prices, historic low interest rates (as low as the World War II era), and FREE MONEY FROM UNCLE SAM!  That's right...in February the new and improved tax credit expanded the $7500 tax credit (which was similar to an interest free loan because it had to be repaid) to an $8000 tax credit that does not have to be repaid!  Of course, there are some noteable guidelines--income limits for single borrower of $75,000 adjusted gross income and $150,000 for a married couple.  Also, you must own the … (0 comments)

bloomsburg: First Time Buyers--There has NEVER been a better time to buy! - 03/06/09 12:09 AM
Real estate continues to be the best investment on the planet.  Of course, it is a long term investment where you can build equity and appreciation as well as enjoy the tax benefits of home ownership.  The new stimulus plan that was passed in February 2008 included a tax credit to first time homebuyers.  Any first time buyer (a buyer who has not owned a property in the past three years) is entitled to an $8000 tax credit if they purchase a property in 2009 prior to December 1st (as long as they qualify within the income limitations).  Unlike last year's tax credit of … (0 comments)

bloomsburg: Bloomsburg, PA Real Estate Market--Good or Bad? - 02/17/08 10:09 PM
 
Well the results are in!  My company, Century 21 Covered Bridges Realty, Inc. had a record breaking year in 2007.  We even had three agents break their personal best year.  We again lead the marketplace and outsold our nearest two competitors combined.  According to the multiple listing service of the Central Susquehanna Valley Board of Realtors, the average sale price increased slightly as did the number of days on the market.  My company continued to lead Columbia County in both the number of closed transactions and sales volume.
The media continues to dwell on the highest rate of forclosures in history and … (1 comments)

Tush Push, Badonkadonk, Bow Legged, Settlin, Cruisin, Red High Heels, Waltz Across Texas, Irish Stew! 
                                                             What are they?                                        
Living in rural Pennsylvania, country music is enjoyed by many on their radios and televisions.  Country line dancing has been very popular in the Bloomsburg area since the early 90's.  Since my colleagues have always been health and weight conscious, we have been attempting to diet, work out, and lose weight for years.  It is always a struggle to find the time to get to the gym or have the energy to use the exercise ball and total gym after a long day of … (6 comments)

bloomsburg: Holiday Craft Shows - 10/27/07 11:24 PM
This morning was an ugly day in Bloomsburg.  It had been raining very hard since last evening.  My daughters called me at 9:30 a.m. and asked if I'd like to go along with them to the fall craft show to be held at the Columbia Montour Area Vocational Technical School today.  I think everyone in our town and the surrounding communities were there!  There were more than a hundred crafters displaying and selling their wares.  There were ghosts, goblins, Thanksgiving turkeys, and plenty of Santas and snowmen that were beautifully created and painted, many which were illuminated with sparkling white lights.  … (0 comments)

bloomsburg: Bloomsburg's Jewel--Bloomsburg University! - 10/21/07 11:49 PM
At the end of Main Street on the top of College Hill is the entrance to Bloomsburg University, and since it had been there as long as I remember, it was easy to take it for granted.  Since the early 1800's post high school education was available in the town of Bloomsburg.  The beginning of higher education in Bloomsburg began in 1839 with the founding of an academy.    Later in 1856 the academy was chartered as the Bloomsburg Literary Institute.  Upon the construction of the first building at its current location, the school was established as a state normal school in … (1 comments)
